"Cast your burdens on the Lord, releasing the weight of them and He will sustain you." (Psalm 55:22)
When you’re at peace, you are in a position of power! When you go through adversities, the enemy fully expects you to get upset, lose your joy, complain, and host your own “pity party.” He’s devised a plan to keep you in an attitude of defeat. When you choose to obey God’s Word and refuse to get upset, you break the forces of darkness and defeat the enemy in your life.
Jesus said in John 14:27, “I’m leaving you My peace. I’m giving it unto you.” The Amplified version says, “Now stop allowing yourself to be agitated and disturbed. And do not permit yourselves to become unsettled.” God has done His part to give you His peace. As a child of God, His peace is on the inside of you right now. You’ve got to do your part and make the decision to live in peace.
When negative circumstances arise, and you make the choice to stay calm and live in peace, you are showing that you have faith and trust in God. Today, choose to keep peace in your life. When you cast your burdens on Him, He promises to sustain you–that’s a place of true peace, a place of lasting power!
A Prayer for Today
God, I know that You are in control, I know that You’re going to see me through; I trust You. I know that no weapon formed against me is going to prosper. Today, I will focus on the peace inside of me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

He who was seated on the throne said, ’I am making everything new!’… Revelation 21:5, NIV.
Can you remember the time when you first discovered a big dream in your heart? Maybe you were determined to excel in your career, excel as a parent, or even excel in your walk with the Lord. You probably started out strong, but maybe things got a little difficult and didn’t happen as quickly as you would have liked. At that point many people decide, “Let’s just settle here. It’s not exactly what we wanted, but at least, it’s good enough.”
Friend, I want to remind you today that you were made for more than good enough! Maybe things haven’t worked out the way you planned, but now is not the time to stop and settle. Now is the time to dig your heals in and begin again. And even if that dream has died—it’s time to dream another dream. God has so much for you in your future.
If you’ve settled in any area of your life, take that first step by lifting your eyes to the Father. Let Him renew your strength. Let Him make things new in your life. Trust that His Word is directing your steps. Thank Him and worship Him because He is making all things new in your life!
Prayer for Today:
Father in heaven, thank You for this new day. Thank You for the opportunity to begin again. I choose to press forward and keep believing for the dreams and desires You’ve placed in my heart. I trust You today with everything that I am in Jesus’ name. Amen.
